    About this Event
    We know that you are all learning in a different environment, some virtual, some in-person with masks and socially distanced. Thankfully even through uncertainty one thing is constant and holds true.
    Education and college is the key to a better future and serves as preparation for what the future holds. We look forward to you joining us virtually this year.

    What is the True2U 9th Grade Extension?
    It’s a virtual, one-on-one mentoring program that provides additional support through the 9th grade year to scholars who have distinguished themselves during the 8th grade school-year True2U program. The program will help students to further develop their interests, strengths, goals, and build upon their leadership skills during seven Saturday sessions.
     
    Each session will feature engaging icebreakers, group activities, thought-provoking discussions and one-on-one mentoring interactions that will help students succeed in high school and set them on a path to college and career readiness.
